The house of god is ground zero for the zombie apocalypse when three siblings gather at a funeral and witness the awakening of an ancient evil that spawns an army of the dead. Quickly forced to hide in the labyrinth of deep catacombs under the church, now the siblings must fight their way out to safety while trying to send the dead back to their graves in this non-stop zombie action thriller.

A Zombie Exorcism is a short and to the point trip into a live action hell. A family find themselves in the middle of a zombie outbreak, with a religious twist to the entire thing, as they battle their way out of a church. Upfront you see enough to see that the family is dysfunctional, but they soon becomes the least of their worries, as all hell breaks loose and we are treated to tension and terror, as the pace never slows down and the blood starts to fly around all over the screen. Maybe the fast cuts could at time make you a little loopy, but for every shaky camera take, they at least seem to more than makeup for it with the gore and blood we see. I think at the end of the day the brutal nature of things and the red stuff will be what everyone takes from this and likes the most about A Zombie Exorcism. If you love gore, then this is just the type of movie you will want to watch.

So what is the downside to a movie like this? Well, the short running time is the only real issue I have. It comes across in the middle of just enough for a full length and a longer short. You will want more when it ends, and I guess you could say it is always better to leave people wanting more than to feel like anything dragged on too long. What I come away from this is the work from a director I’d like to see a lot more from and I hope more of his work comes stateside. Heck, I’d like to see a sequel to this. If this movie is any indication as to what Norway has to offer up in the form of horror films, then I’d be happy to see more from there. Again, if you love gore movies, then this is something you will want to see. It is pretty tense and brutal in nature, which makes for a fun watch.
